ortho weed b gon max. >> jeff: lebron james and miami heat, a dominant performance started with defense. forced 27 turnovers so far for 38 points then james has been terrific offensively. a 14 from the floor. loving the 14 from the free-throw line. he's rolling off to the heat. you could not ask for a better two-way performance from your team than eric spoelstra got here this afternoon. >> mike: these two good friends
6:01 pm
from when they went to high school summer camps, played on the olympics together. came from the same draft together. lebron james easily takes game one. harrellson spots up on the corner. that won't go and rebound. knicks and heat, in the classic playoff game matchup, this is certainly not one of them. this is as one-sided as any of them and for the knicks, the last two times they were in the playoffs, last year against boston. 2004 against new jersey, they got swept. harrellson gets it inside. novak, to bibby. >> jeff: one thing i would say, mike. while it looked awful for new york tonight. every playoff game, has a distinct personality. and just because you played so poorly, on one given night,
6:02 pm
doesn't mean you can't bounce back and still take it back to new york. one game appease. shumpert being out, that's going to be hard to overcome. >> mike: i've always said, as jones lines up the three -- up by 35. the overreaction during the playoffs by fan, media, sometime s players, to a one-playoff win to a one-playoff loss. it's incredible. so much more than the regular season. >> jeff: one thing you have to guard against is always the subconscious. >> mike: jerome gordon throws it down, a rookie from tulsa. >> jeff: if you're miami, you're subconscious that the next game is going to be it this game picking up where you left off. not necessarily so, because new york has the advantage of having all of the preparation time now, all of the things they got to do better.
6:03 pm
and mike woodson will afford that. >> mike: it they'll throw it out. miami heat pulls out a sparkling defensive performance. as dominant as you can be in game one. as they hammer the knicks, led by lebron james. another brilliant performance. final score, the heat 100, and the knicks, 67. james with 32. the knicks turned it over 27 times. for jeff van gundy, lisa salters and our entire abc crew, mike breen saying so long from miami. now except for the west coast. stay tuned for abc's "world news" or your local news over most of these abc stations. thanks for watching abc. home of the nba finals. until natural disasters no longer strike.

6:09 pm
even included cement supports and two levels with multiple hatches for coming and going. >> amazingly fort fied. it's unbelievable pictures don't do it justice. >> reporter: finding the bunker wasn't easy. they found the pickup truck and triangulated it from photos found on the hard drive and trackers by footprints in the woods. tonight, friends of his wife and daughter told police they're relieved he's not a threat to anyone else. it's still an active crime scene and no one will get near it any time soon. people police are concerned about possible booby traps and explosives inside. we're turning to the freeze warning around the nation tonight. this is extreme and could affect the prices we pay at the supermarket. it's sent temperature plunging on this last week of april.
6:10 pm
lows drive into the 20s, maybe lower, and tonight they rushing to protect their crops to head off the damage. >> reporter: the firsts, the fans, and the sheets no it's not a camping trip. it's a frost and worst deep freeze on the way. many farmers are in for a sleepless night. >> we're watching the weather very, very closely and prepared to take the next steps if we have to. >> reporter: from the lifeless asparagus to the fate this orchard wants to avoid this spring has been full of frosty father. >> with awful the leaves, blossoms and buds on the tree, it won't take much to samp that stuff off. >> in the low-lighting areas we're lighting fires to try to keep the low-lying areas a little warmer.
6:11 pm
>> reporter: the last freeze of the season for this region doesn't usually come until early may. but a record heat in march confused crops causing some to develop three to six weeks ahead of schedule. >> we were up every half hour looking at the temperatures. >> reporter: jason at demarest farm in new jersey is keeping an eye on his fruits and veggies. >> it will start with tveggie prices first. they're more susceptible. >> ginger zee is here, you said it's not entirely bad for some of the crops? >> yes, go closer the coast. new jersey, he was telling us, because of the warmth and ample sunshine this spring, overall he's hoping for record numbers in his crops for apples and peaches. >> nonetheless as we look at the map. this has been a season of extremes and cannot make it easy for formers trying to make a living. >> tonight is one from the last
6:12 pm
nights we have to worry. we'll see a warming trend after that. >> thanks, ginger. we turn to the medical head line breaking today that will cause concern and confusion for many american men. a sweeping study raising questions about the best way to treat prostate scanser, nearly $242,000 men, nearly 7 every day. face prostate cancer alone. tonight, abc's tanya rivera reports this new research is casting doubting on whether surgery is really the best option. >> reporter: when warren buffer fet reve buffett revealed prostate cancer he told investors he will be fine. now a new study, saying a course of nontreatment might be best for patients like buffett with early stage prostate cancer. >> for an 80-year-old man, likely they will die from
6:13 pm
something other than prostate cancer. >> reporter: stunning research said surgery for early stage patients is rarely necessary. >> the study could be a game-changer for prostate cancer. >> reporter: the study tracked men over 12 years and found no significant difference between the survival rates to those who had surgery to remove the prostate gland and those who did nothing. one reason, most prostate cancers grow lowly. in the u.s., 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. only 1 in 36 will die of it. after an early stage diagnosis, dr. louis potters recommends what he calls active surveillance. >> we would take the psa every three months and patients are reby optioncied every year or two months. >> reporter: study found that patients with high psa levels do see a small benefit from the surgery but in the u.s., most men are diagnosed in the low
6:14 pm
risk, early stage such as warren buffett. while he is older than the recommended age for surgery, opted for radiation therapy. >> tanya is with us now. this causes a lot of concern with a lot of people who think they made the right choice already. the best advice is to ask your doctor. in the meantime the surgery if that's what you choose, can bring with it side effects? >> oh, yes, there's serious side effects from your love life to incontinence. less than 10% of men result in incontinence, 50% results in impoten impotence. there's serious side effects you should consider. >> a lot of study moving forward. you said there's conversation about some doctors, in the earliest stages, being considered cancerous. >> yes, i spoke with some who said there's hallway chatter about whether it should be called cancer, if they hear that word, they have a visceral reaction and immediately want treatment. that may not be the best course of action.
6:15 pm
bottom line. men must discuss carefully and now they may have more time to do so. >> when caught early. this is a treatable condition. we're hearing more details about the raid that killed osama bin laden. leon panetta who was the cia director, is giving the details of the heart-stopping moments when the navy s.e.a.l.s went in to take out their target. >> having those helicopters go 150 miles into pakistan, and the concern about whether or not they would be detected, and then actually going in to the compound, when one of the helicopters went down because of the heat, coming off the ground, it was just hotter than anybody had anticipated. and, obviously, that was pretty nerve-racking. >> nerve-racking.
6:16 pm
we all remember the tense moments from inside the white house. and this, the smiles of the white house correspondence dinner, the president knowing the raid had happened. there was even a joke about bin laden from comedian seth meyers. >> "people" know that bin laden is hiding but every day from 4:00 to 5:00 he hosts a show on c-span? and another moment tonight, jake tapper honored for third year in a row for intrepid and tough questioning. and we'll have the jokes tomorrow night. and george and the powerhouse political "roundtable." first thing tomorrow right here on abc's "this week." when we come back the breaking story of the u.s. and china, newest case of mystery and intrigue tonight. i remember the day my doctor told me i have an irregular heartbeat, and that it put me at 5-times greater risk of a stroke. i was worried.
6:17 pm
i worried about my wife, and my family. bill has the most common type of atrial fibrillation, or afib. it's not caused by a heart valve problem. he was taking warfarin, but i've put him on pradaxa instead. in a clinical trial, pradaxa 150 mgs reduced stroke risk 35% more than warfarin without the need for regular blood tests. i sure was glad to hear that. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding, and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition like stomach ulcers, or take aspirin, nsaids, or bloodthinners, or if you have kidney problems, especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all medicines you take, any planned medical or dental procedures, and don't stop taking pradaxa without your doctor's approval, as stopping may increase your stroke risk. other side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. pradaxa is progress.
6:18 pm
if you have afib not caused by a heart valve problem, ask your doctor if you can reduce your risk of stroke with pradaxa. that's how it is with alzheimer's disease. she needs help from me. and her medication. the exelon patch -- it releases medication continuously for twenty-four hours. she uses one exelon patch daily for the treatment of mild to moderate alzheimer's symptoms. [ female announcer ] it cannot change the course of the disease. hospitalization and rarely death have been reported in patients who wore more than one patch at a time. the most common side effects of exelon patch are nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. the likelihood and severity of these side effects may increase as the dose increases. patients may experience loss of appetite or weight. patients who weigh less than 110 pounds
6:19 pm
may experience more side effects. people at risk for stomach ulcers who take certain other medicines should talk to their doctor because serious stomach problems such as bleeding may worsen. people with certain heart conditions may experience slow heart rate. [ woman ] whenever i needed her, she was there for me. now i'm here for her. [ female announcer ] ask the doctor about your loved one trying the exelon patch. visit exelonpatch.com to learn more. now to the case of international intrigue involving the u.s. and china, and this latest case comes five days before secretary of state hillary clinton is said to arrive for top level talks. the big question, what happened to a famous blind chinese activist a fugitive who managed to escape from house arrest and is the u.s. now protecting him. here's david kerley. >> reporter: it's like a plot from a international thriller. a blind activist.
6:20 pm
when christian bale tried to visit? >> why can i not visit? >> reporter: he was pushed back by security. but he opposed to forced abortions and sterilizations was able to scale a while and escape. a supporter chased him to beijing where a car chase ensued. and he ended in the u.s. embassy. what does the u.s. say? >> can you say that cheng is at the embassy or in the custody of the united states? >> i don't have anything for you on that subject. >> reporter: if true this the first time since tienanmen square that the u.s. protected a activist. chen even taunted on video. secretary of state clinton and secretary geithner are said to return to beijing for talks. >> this does have the potential
6:21 pm
to be a major international incident. >> it could become that if it's mishandled. >> reporter: so far the chinese issued this issue should not disrupt talks. since the u.s. long criticized the chinese human rights record the secretary of state will be walking a beijing tight rope next week. david. >> it will be something to watch. david kerley, thank you. i'll be back with more news right after this. i used to love hearing that phrase... but not since i learned i have... postmenopausal osteoporosis and a high risk for fracture. i want to keep acting but a broken bone could change that. so my doctor and i chose prolia® to reduce my risk of fractures. prolia® is proven to help make bones stronger. proven to help increase bone density. i take prolia®. it's different. it's two shots a year. [announcer:] if you take prolia® (denosumab) you should not take xgeva®. prolia® can cause serious side effects,
6:22 pm
including low blood calcium levels, serious infections... ...some of which may require hospitalization, and skin inflammation, rash and eczema. tell your doctor if you develop dental problems... ...as severe jawbone problems may happen. what's out there matters to me. so does what's in here. break a leg! thanks ed. ask your doctor if prolia® is right for you. the calcium they take because they don't take it with food. switch to citracal maximum plus d. it's the only calcium supplement that can be taken with or without food. that's why my doctor recommends citracal maximum. it's all about absorption. why you fell in love with her in the first place. and why you still feel the same. but your erectile dysfunction -- that could be a question of blood flow. cialis for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions
